resses Show Return of Sheath;
:>uffant Most Popular in Sleeves

New Leisure Wear Attractions Seen

en can breathe a sigh of re-
for the chemise and empire
out of the scene of women's
ses this fall.
he fashion scene in Ann Arbor,,
1 in the stores and in the clos-
of fashion-conscious coeds, de-
s natural waistlines in sheaths
full skirts without. billowy

Brocades and chiffons will leadi
the fashion parade to pledge for-
mals and holiday dances. Also,
popular are the two piece dress
ensembles that go to a concert
or play with jacket on and be-
comes a shimmering cocktail dress
afterward with jacket off.
The satin sheath with a match-
ing or contrasting overskirt is the
idea outfit for the girl who likes"
changing from a siren to a bouf-
fant mood.
Bouffant Sleeves
Bouffant is also the last word
in sleeves. The length of these
sleeves varies from a short puff to
the long, flowing puff. Comparable
to the bouffant is the sleeve with
fur trim. This trim is often carried
out on collars of dresses and jack-
ets, but is not seen on the hem-
line this year,
The- favorite style in casual
.dresses, the shirt dress, has evolved
into something that can be worn
anywhere, anytime.
The latest version could go to a
pledge formal. It is styled in chif-
fon, .lace and pure silk. . These
versatile creations come in both
one and two-piece ensembles.
Popular for the not-so-dressy
occasions are the printed wools
and jerseys. Both materials are
done up in the basic. and classic
styles.
Wool dresses occur, in diverse
creations, with an increasing num-
ber of dressy wools being worn
this fall. The favorite black leads
the show accompanied by the new
moss or loden green.
Chiffon, Jersey Combination
White, always a favorite around
the winter holidays should be even

more popular this winter, includ-!
ing costumes of white with a
print, in chiffon and wool jersey
combinations.
There is no set style this sea-
son, except perhaps the trend to-
wai'd the classic. Dresses definite-I
ly show a waistline; the low back'
has some influence; the bouffant
sleeve is popular, but not predom-
inant.
So this year at least, women
need not fear looking like every-
one else. She may lead the band
in a form fitting brocade sheath,
or whirl to the melody in a filmy,
billowy style. And there is a vari-
ety in materials this year for every
taste.; .-
The campus trend this season
is the casual look, be it for parties
or dances.; Mix and match is the
keyword for the coed as it is, both
inexpensive andingood, taste. The
"basic" dress in simple lines is a
must to complete the wardrobe.

SEMI-FORMAL'
... for big occasions

Coeds Lean
To Dairtiness
In Jewelryt
Daintiness dominates the theme1
of campus jewelry.
The circle pin, of course, is still
favorite, but scatter and novelty
pins are seen on many a sweater.
Even stick pins are gaining promi-
nence as an important piece of
jewelry.
Bracelets with dangles, semi-
precious stones, and real coins are!
often worn together on one arma
when they are all of the same
basic metal. Even gold and silver
bracelets are toned down into
dainty, small styles.
A single pearl or charm is usu-
ally worn on a plain chain with
sweaters for classes, and bibs and
ropes are seen for dressier occa-
sions. Chains and beads are re-
placing the chokers which were so
popular last year.
Snake type and pearl rings are
becoming increasingly. popular.
The general trend among the
coeds, is towards more colorful
jewelry of conservative size.
Fall Fashions
To Offer More
Smaller Styles
This year the clothes market is
emphasizing clothes for junior fig-
ures, especially in the way of date
dresses, the manager of a large
local clothing store said recently.
Junior buyers have encouraged
manufacturers for some time to
make more fasions in sizes five and
seven, he continued, and this year,
for the first time, petite sizes are
out in some depth.
There is more selection in casual
and dressy wool dresses,as. well as
in cocktail dresses for the petite
girl in Ann Arbor this fall.
So the tiny girl can have more
fun shopping this year with, such
an array of dresses at hand.

Slacks and Bermuda shorts are
perennial campus favorites.
This year's selection includes
traditional tartan plaids - Mac-
Gregor, Campbell, MacDonald,
Stewart - and the always popu-
lar solid colors.
Muted plaids in soft shades of
green; rose and brown are as fash-
ionable this year as last. But many
not-so-muted plaids are also be-
ing shown. Fire-engine red, yel-
low, black, and an especially bril-
liant blue in large, unusual plaids
will encourage many a Michigan
coed into doing hip-reducing ex-
ercises.
Tweed bermudas and slacks
seem to be increasing in popular-
ity.
Bermudas come in soft, multi-
colored tweeds (mossy greens pre-
dominate) and in smart-looking
black - and - white herringbone
tweed.
This year's "something differ-
ent" in leisure-time wear (for
those of you who happen to have
some leisure time) seems to be
bermudas and slacks in hounds-
tooth check.
They come in very attractive
colors-and are a welcome change
from plaids and charcoal gray.
Corduroy, is also a little differ-
ent this year -- wider ribbed and
richer looking - and belted with
a twine-like material. Brown is
the most frequent color - from
beige, gold, rust to chocolate.,
Extra-slim slacks come in bright
colors and, all-over patterns. Some
even have one-thread stripes. And
one pair looked like a, petitpoint
Aztec pattern.

-Daly-Jim Warne
CAMPUS FAVORITES-Kilts and bernmudas in tweeds and tartan plaids are ever popular for casu
college wear. Tweeds this year are soft and multicolored. And, as In sport coats this year, loden greg
is the predominant color. Houndstooth check is also being shown this year in sportswear, as well a
bold, brilliant colored plaids. Both are a welcomed relief from charcoal grey.
